Thank you in advance for the time you take to look over my profile. I am a non-traditional student that after working for a 5 plus years after high school I went back to school. Take a quick look! And tell me what I can work on, and what I should realistically hope to achieve. Also, I would like Finance, Strategy, and Consulting to be the focus.

DREAM : Stanford
INTEREST:Wharton, Booth, Haas, Anderson, McCombs

ETHNICITY: Caucasian
AGE : 28
MARITAL : Married
NOTES : I married a divorcee in 2010, with 2 girls now 6 & 8. I grew up poor, father died when I was 7, after my parents divorced when I was 5. Mother was depressed all through teenage years and unemployed (If this stuff could be used to sell myself).

SCHOOL : Utah Valley University (Open Enrollment State School)
DEGREE : BS Economics

I am currently finishing a 4 month post-graduation internship in Shanghai with a small boutique consulting firm called 'Streetsmart International.' The Managing Director wrote a book in 2002 on doing business in China that was a top 1% book on Amazon. We do market entry strategy for companies coming to China, and I have been the project lead on an educational guide published by China's version of Forbes Rich List.

I worked full time between 2002-2011(excluding 2006 & 2007 when I was in Europe). I mainly managed a retail shoe store in 2004/2005. Starting in 2008 I was a Lead Technician for 'Pinnacle Security,' former the larger ADT dealer in the country and now independent. Duties included recruiting, training, and managing all technicians in a large area. Later I opened new offices and areas for the company.

While in School I did Account Management for XanGo, a health juice, in DUTCH.

2005 - 2007 : 2 Year LDS Mission to the Netherlands and Belgium
2008 - 2011 : Volunteered with the Boy Scouts of America as a Scout Leader
2012 : I have taught English here in Shanghai as well as volunteered at a youth sports program
ONGOING : Church volunteer service
